. case in point, the presidency of george w. bush, 2004, before the debates, seen as a problem for the president to deal with the storm in florida, and that he was not prepared for the first debate with senator kerry; however, image-wise, he was getting his hands dirty, a good pr move for the white house at the time. a year in change, hurricane that treen that, not good for president bush at the time. depends on what the reaction of the federal government is, how bad the storm is, and what on the ticks you get from the white house and president obama churns out in response of this. neil: who thought the october surprise would be a nor'easter or whatever. >> and named sandy. neil: right. rich edson, thank you very much. good having you on. >> thanks. neil: microsoft entering the tablet ring, and apple could get its bell rung because of the economy. the former microsoft big wig on how companies could be down for the count, after this.

-organized campaigns that we've seen in recent memory was the 2004 george w. bush campaign. karl rove engineered a very impressive, microtargeting effort, where they started to integrate people's consumer preferences with their voting data to try to more precise -- so instead of just saying, ok, we're going to target everyone that we know is, say, a latino woman, you can actually individually start to target people based on what kind of car they drive, or what kind of cereal they eat, or all kinds of little factors that the people know from, you know, when you fill out surveys or when you buy things, that kind of thing. the obama campaign did that even more impressively in 2008, and they've been building on that ever since. so they've built a really formidable sort of digital, integrated data-targeting effort, that they then have put together with this vast network of field offices on the ground and neighborhood teams and volunteers and through facebook and everything else, so they know practically who all of their voters are, the millions and millions of people that they expect or hope they can drive
florida went for george w. bush by 537 votes? out of millions cast. >> i am. because you can't ever get that out of your head because it was just such a surprise. i can tell you, you know, it's not whether i hear them, it's whether both these campaigns hear them. one of the things i was listening to james baker the other day who of course was the lead lawyer for the then-candidate bush in 2000 who said, look, none of us ever expected this would happen. we weren't ready for a recount when it suddenly was obvious they needed one. both sides have lawyers that have been studying sometimes automatic recounts in some states. they've been looking at all the voter laws in these swing states just for the possibility that this could happen in ohio or colorado or florida or, you know, any of the -- virginia, any of those other swing states. >> you're seeing evidence in ohio, john, of a lot of lawyers getting ready to get involved if necessary. >> reporter: and let's hope it doesn't happen. but they're watching this through the early voting process. there are observers when you go to the early voti
would be complete without me mentioning the conversation between george w. bush and jock chirac where bush had been unsuccessful in according to buy support the war. let me just read a brief passage and comment. talking about a phone call. you and i share a common faith. roman catholic methodist, but we are both christians committed to the teachings of the bible. we share one common laura. but then bush went on. at work in the middle east. biblical prophecies are being fulfilled. this confrontation is willed by guy who wants to use this conflict to raise his people's enemies before a new age begins. and why don't you describe what god and my god were being referenced and what their response was. >> well, actually, he got up the phone and looked at his aides and said, does anybody know what he was talking about? [laughter] and they knew it was something religious because of this whole thing about biblical prophecy. actually, the french government went and sought out the assistance of a biblical scholar in switzerland. and i just want to stop. we're talking about whether or not france w
election. >> nor did he think it would be. this is the worst position since any incumbent since george w. bush and maybe jimmy carter. it's the testament to his ten as a tiana lot of the money he raised and spent that it resulted in a tie. megyn: it never actually ends in a tie. we will get a result and chris stirewalt will know it before any of us knows it. he will be on the fox news decision desk tuesday night and i'll be saying, what do you know, and he'll be saying, i can't talk now. >> there is always time for you, meg. >> shall we tell them what happened back in 2010. brett and i were about to go on the air and we weren't able to call like the biggest -- anyway it wound up going into the prompter, that's how we learned as we read it it came out. >> we like to keep you guessing, megyn, we like to keep you on your toes. >> thanks, chris. let's hope that doesn't happen on tuesday. >> promise. megyn: back now to the growing frustration and just heartbreak, heartbreak in some of the places hardest hit by the monster storm this week in the northeast. look at what the helicopters found in
a violater is china? we're mad at them for protectionist policies, but george w. bush put limits on products, but we allow the currency to get weak? >> yeah, well, china's run the largest program of manufacturing subsidies in the world, and they are not compliant with the world trade organization obligations. it's been encouraging property piracy matters. the international trade commission in 2009 said china's ip violations cost businesses $48 billion, and if china enforced intellectual property laws, american businesses would have employed 923,000 more americans in the united states. china has been the subject of the wto complaints, and it's lost all of them. clearly, we have a big issue with them. dennis: okay. someone to combat them, and i have not heard much from either side. thank you for being with us donald chang and donald gross. >> thank you. >> debate this, labors, unions, collective bargaining, brett mcmahon of miller and long destruction, and bill dyne author of "state of the unions" here at noon eastern. cheryl: live at reagan airport in washington, d.c. where they are trying to
for ronald reagan and george h.w. bush explains why tuesday is all about the economy. >> i can tell you the most important thing about america has been through out its history its economy. we can't be strong militarily, diplomatically or in any other way and politically unless we are strong economically. we now have a debt to gdp that is just out of sight. we to figure out some way to deal with that. >> robert gray from the fox business network joins us this morning. what are we expecting from these jobs numbers? >> not a lot different than last month. keep in mind for october sandy not going to effect the numbers that much. we will see a lot of that next month. let's take a look. here are the estimates we are looking for. 8:30 eastern time these are the numbers 125,000 jobs created the unemployment rate to jump 7.9 percent. unemployment rate a big jump down 7.8 percent here. a couple of key things to watch. 125,000 right on. government not adding anything in there. they are looking for manufacturing jobs to contract but not by as much as the month before and the amount of estimates you

be responsive. >> thank you. >> eli lake, newsweek magazine. >> it has been recorded george w. bush tapped you or once you to be the fema director when you were in florida after mike brown. is that true, and to you write your own -- do you write your own tweets? >> yes, that is why there is this piping's. as far as the rest of this that goes, i work for the present right now, and that is my focus. what happened previously, we can talk about that later offline. >> thank you. >> next question. wall street journal, your line is open. >> i wanted to ask whether there is a consolidated effort on how many people are being told to evacuate or have evaporated, and a number of states that would involve. the second question on the coastal storm surges. if you could share more perspective on how long this could last, and a bit of historical perspective on whether -- when was the last time we have those kinds of potential storm surges over such a large swath of scocoast line? >> i do not have that in front of me. each state has been doing their own evacuations. we have been looking at what they would need
advisor to george w. bush. nice to see you long time. doing well. you're going to help us look at the electoral college and we hear it's about ohio can't make it to the white house without winning ohio. >> there are other ways, but in order to get to ohio first, you have to get to three and then two. the three states that you have to get to before you get to ohio are florida, north carolina, and-- are indiana, north carolina and virginia, three historically republican states that president obama won and then you've got to win florida, which has 29 electoral college votes, you get those four states, indiana nobody considers to be a battle ground, if romney gets the three states, florida, north carolina, virginia, then he's set up for, you know, going to ohio, those three states look pretty good. north carolina out of contention, florida looks pretty good. you know, florida four years ago, they had the ballot requests four years ago in florida, the democrats had a 7 point advantage, 45% of the absentee ballot requests, 37 for republicans-- 46-37. this time the republicans have a
and i were talking about this in the green room at a time and i remember back to 192 when george h.w. bush, the first bush presidency was on the line, bill clinton was battling him, 1992. bush had a recession, jobs were not being created, but the last jobs number there was a downtick in unemployment, a good positive jobs number that came out with four days to go before the election, and no one knew about it. no one paid any attention to it. obviously one side spun it as a positive, one side spun it as a negative but people had already made their mind up. what's baked into the election the three people that are still undecided in the united states of america about this election are not waiting for the jobs number to come out this morning at 8:30 to make up their final decision. i think most everyone understands right now that the economy is not growing as fast as it could, we're not creating the jobs that we could and almost no number that comes out this morning is going to benefit the election at this point in time. >> jared, you agree with that? i'll also throw into the mix we've ha
